Some women seem to swing off the trapeze of life, open their legs, pop out a baby, secure it, while completing a triple-pike dismount and land safely in the nets with baby attached to breast. Me....not so much.
Pregnancy number 1 - Blow up to the size of a mansion, reduce to a commission home and wait 10 weeks in hospital for recommended caesarean section.
Pregnancy number 2 - Made an Angel long before its due date resulting in D & C.
Pregnancy number 3 - Smooth sailing...not quite beleivable that it was going so well, got to the end totallyshittingmyself that I would have another disabled child or angel.....elected Caesar.
That was 5 years ago.....
Today....Uterus has packed it in. Its cracked the shits and decided to give up any form of a pervious life. Diagnosis Adenomyosis treatment Laparoscopic Hysterectomy and I AM READY!
I've been kindly reassured that my playground will still be in tact, just the swings will be gone. I'm good with that, swings make me feel nauseous anyway. I can live without swings but I'm too young and feisty for my playground to go missing in action!
So...3 weeks from now I'm going in for running repairs on this womanly body of mine so I can get back into life. OH...and the bonus...I get to keep my ovaries. (They're looking smashingly good apparently!)
To My Darling Husband Dave,
I am soooooo deeeeeeply sorry I gave you a Vasectomy for your 43rd birthday, it seems it wasn't necessary........I love you for doing it for me though!
Your LOVING wife. Leonie xx
